Mother of Sea North Tours, Polar Inn and all the staff within, Louise is the glue that holds us all together. Co-owner of both companies and wife to Dwight Allen, she makes sure everything is functioning properly. Amid doing all the organizing, scheduling and reservations, she is the pretty face behind the desk ready with an ever-cheerful greeting. This whirlwind of a lady somehow manages to keep us all in line while juggling what should be a three person job. Louise is fluent in French and is a well-travelled individual and yet when she moved to Churchill 1979, it captured her heart. Her adventuresome and busy spirit has her favourite past time being recreationally dog mushing and when she does take time to rest, cuddling her 2 huskies. She also enjoys landscaping, home décor, and baking. In the spring of 2001, Louise received an award from the WD Minister’s Award of Excellence.

He is on the organizing committee for the Hudson Bay Quest musher race and which allows him to spend more time in the north in March. He has been driving now professionally for 45+ years so you will most likely find him behind the wheel of one of the shuttle vehicles or doing town and area tours. He can
proudly say that he has driven 4.5 million miles in his career and has hauled on every ice road in Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario and occasionally into Saskatchewan pioneering some of the newer overland winter roads such as Brochet, Lac Brochet, and into Tadoule Lake which has a deep history with Churchill. Often refers to himself as the Hank Snow of Canada but has always been drawn to the north. Folks go south for the winter, I go north. There is a unique brotherhood and family in the north. Semi-retired and happy to be here.
